The Kitchen Linens Book!

I was so happy to find my copy of this book by EllynAnne Geisel in the mail last week - I mentioned in a previous post that I won it in a giveaway at Lulu's Vintage. What a fabulous book it is! As if the dust jacket cover wasn't cute enough, here is what the hardcover underneath looks like!
Inside, you will find lovely illustrations and information about ALL kinds of vintage goodies. Like these crocheted hot mats that I wrote about in an earlier post:
Delightful embroidered linens like this one that I showed you in my 2nd post on this blog!
(I hit the 500 mark on Tuesday of last week! Can you believe it?)
Bright and colorful table linens, like this one from my collection:

Crocheted pot holders:

Vintage tea towels - this one is from my linen cupboard, as well:
Gorgeous tablecloths, similar to my geranium one, below:

It is a really lovely book all the way through - I feel so lucky to have won one! Thank you again, Lulu!
